A federal judge in Spokane has officially denied a request to throw out a lawsuit against two psychologists who helped design the CIA's harsh interrogation program used in the war on terror. In his written order on Monday, Judge Justin Quackenbush said a jury will hear the lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of three former detainees. The men were subjected to physical assaults and sleep deprivation, forced to stand with their arms chained overhead, doused with icy water and stuffed into boxes.The trial is being held here because the two CIA consultants were working at WSU when they consulted. It's really a story about DC actions, so it's surprising that SorosACLU didn't hold the trial in DC where more media attention is guaranteed, and where the verdict will be easier to control. As usual SorosACLU is misdirecting the main question as well. We should be asking whether PERMANENT AGGRESSIVE WAR is a good or successful policy. Globalists prohibit the correct question. Globalists want to eliminate the most effective TOOLS of warmaking because globalism requires ETERNAL PERMANENT AGGRESSIVE WAR. When you constrain soldiers, you guarantee that wars cannot end. When you constrain police, you guarantee that police will never catch criminals. When you constrain sentencing, you guarantee that sentencing will never reform criminals. When you constrain local governments, you guarantee that local government will never solve local problems. When you constrain small business, you guarantee that BezOS will own everything. Etymology again: SOLVE (Latin soluere) comes from Indo-European se-lu. Se is the universal reflexive pronoun, lu means loosen. Solving a problem requires LOOSENING YOURSELF first. You must be free to consider all possibilities, free to examine all internal and external parts of the problem. Globalists forbid solutions. All potential problem-solvers, governments or businesses or courts or engineers, must be constrained to follow ONE RIGID PATH which is guaranteed to AVOID ALL POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
